Just ok. Wanted to compare steakhouses - mannys vs murray's. Mannys definitely wins, even considering high prices. Murray's mac and cheese was awful! Service was very good.

This is a "Must Go" classic and historical restaurant in Minneapolis. Old photos of famous people on the walls and classic black and white decor. Excellent food and service with aged beef that is so tender you can cut it with a butter knife. In fact, this restaurant has won the Butter Knife award many times for the most tender steaks. I had the 20 ounce Tenderloin which was absolutely wonderful. Probably the best i have had. Highly recommend this steakhouse. Full bar, all major credit cards. Valet parking.

This was hands down, the best steak I have ever eaten. I got the grass fed beef filet and it was surprisingly tender and very flavorful. My husband got the (Kobe equivalent) ribeye and it was fabulous. The various breads, including the garlic bread were a great compliment to the meal. Our server Dennis was excellent - very knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. If you are in Minneapolis, you need to go to Murray's!

Have been enjoying the best steaks and garlic toast at Murray's since the 50's. It's charming and you can be formally or casually dressed and feel comfortable. Have been with family, friends, and business associates over the years. ALWAYS FABULOUS ! One of the old favorites, but never out of style ! Will continue to enjoy and recommend it as one of the best places in downtown Minneapolis.....

The food at Murray’s is the best. I am vegetarian and the sides are ample and sharable. The risotto was excellent. We also had a gluten free diner and Murrays was able to accommodated the gluten free request. The best part of dining at Murray’s is the toast. It is the same recipe from when we first dined at Murray’s over 40 years ago. The service was great.

Murray’s continues to be the best steaks in town, and some of the best in the country. The silver butter knife is so tasty and much better than the national chains. And the garlic toast is the ultimate extra.

A truly phenomenal experience. Everything was exactly as we’d hoped it would be. Fine American throwback dining at it’s best. Beautiful, delectable steaks (we both got the daily special Wagu Ribeye with the extra marbling that was about $60 per portion). Perfect asparagus and baked potato, etc. They topped it all off with a complimentary chocolate cake with Heath bar bits in the icing. I’m guessing the cake was because it was a special occasion. It was all fantastic. Can’t wait to go back!

We try to get to Murray’s several times a year.
Over the years the food has always been terrific. In addition to the menue items, the chef prepares pre fix wine paired dinners for small groups, advertized through social media.
Management and service are always first class!

Awesome steakhouse with phenomenal food; a great wine list; excellent service and beautiful dining room. Loved the Single Malt Scotch flight of 3 nice drams. The only better steakhouse I know is in Las Vegas - The Wynn. In Minneapolis, Murray's is head over heals above Manny's ! ! !

My wife and I have eaten here numerous times and was excited to share the experience with out of town colleagues. For some reason the steak wasn’t good this time around. It didn’t have the same flavor we remembered. It was bland, and luke warm. The sides were uneventful and the soup was over cooked and mushy. The service was outstanding but the meal wasn’t pleasant this time around.

My wife and I dined at Murray's recently for the first time. The occasion was our 2nd Wedding Anniversary. On arrival, we were warmly greeted and the hostess ensured we received seating in a relatively quiet table, and that our reservation was kept on time. We ordered the Silver Butter Knife Steak for Two, and the hickory shrimp and crab cake apps. Because it was our anniversary, we were treated to a complimentary dessert of homemade chocolate cake with toffee and whipped cream -a very sweet surprise! All of the food was incredibly delicious, and the atmosphere, service, and overall dining experience made our evening special.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal experience at Murray's. A baked potato could have been baked a bit longer though wasn't a show stopper. It's a bit pricey compared to some similar local options especially if one adds a la carte items (side vegetable, refill of soft drinks) without paying attention to how that runs up one's tab. Generally speaking this is a fine, venerable favorite destination for me to entertain friends and family for dinner when I am in town.

This is a great restaurant. The beet salad and the crab cakes with spicey aioli were wonderful starters. The artichoke and spinach risotto side was cheesy and just fantastic. The 10 ounce filet with bearnaise was just perfect. I give this place a 4.7 star rating. One of Minneapolis' best dining experiences.

I love this place! The atmosphere is wonderful, very 1960s "Mad Men." It's a historic restaurant and it retains that mid-century vibe. It's pricey but a great place to celebrate a special occasion.

My wife and I try to visit Murray's at least once per year to celebrate special occasions. This visit was for Mothers Day and once again, it did not disappoint. We always split the famous "Silver Butter Knife Steak" and a bottle of Cab. If you haven't visited Murray's, do yourself a favor and take your date, they'll appreciate it.
